Pas De La Casa Advanced

The Grandvalira region has a total of 22 black runs of which 5 are in the Pas de la Casa/Porte des Neiges region.

There’s good off-piste skiing from Pic D’Encampadana but getting there is a challenge. From Tossal de la Lossada take the blue run Llosada to where the pistebasher will tow you across the saddle to the Pic D’Encampadana. Alternatively, take three lifts up from Canillo.

The off-piste runs converge at Riba Escorxada from which there is a snowshoe route down to El Forn where you can take the TSD4 Portella ski lift back up to Portella and ski down the blue run “daina” to start again.

If you fancy clocking up as much as 193km in a single day there’s the new Grandvalira tour itinerary which gives you the option to cover the whole resort from Pas de la Casa to El Forn and pretty much traverse Andorra from its north east border to the very middle of the principality, but the route needs improvement.

At the moment you can get on a cable car at Encamp at the southern end of Grandvalira right up to Collada D’Enradort (2,447m) but can’t then ski back to Encamp – you have to ski down to El Tarter and get the Grandvalira bus back. The whole sequence is oriented towards Pas de la Casa and Soldeu.
